Halloween Watercolor Marshmallow Pops: Sweet & Whimsical

Language: English
All Levels

Course description

Marshmallows are sweet and squishy treats that can be molded into unexpected and festive shapes. Today’s class combines the beauty of watercolor, some Halloween inspired characters, and the candy marshmallow to create paintings of marshmallow pops: ghost, candy corn, jack o’lantern, and Count Dracula. All are reminiscent of traditional Halloween images, but with an aesthetic of a marshmallow. We’ll combine classic Halloween imagery with the rounded features of a puffy marshmallow on a stick. Class includes a template to sketch out all 4 images, plus a Class Supply List. Sketch your images, Paint along with me, and then share your photos. This class is for beginners and we will explore wet on wet techniques and focus on gradual blending of colors. We’ll also create a glaze layer to intensify already painted color in Chapter 18. We’ll work on controlling shapes, but still letting the watercolors flow. Also included is a fun Bonus Class for a marshmallow without a costume.
